Senators reach deal on
immigration overhaul

USA Today, by Alan Gomez

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/28/2013 10:53:37 AM

WASHINGTON — As President Obama prepares to lay out his immigration plan during a speech in Las Vegas on Tuesday, a group of bipartisan senators has reached agreement on a framework to overhaul the nation´s immigration system. The deal will be announced during an afternoon press conference Monday at the U.S. Capitol. The plan addresses border security, the ability of businesses to check a person´s immigration status and a streamlined process for future immigrants to enter the United States. It also opens a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the country.

The greatest country in the history of the world is dead. Come one, come all, and feast on the carrion!Thanks Republican Senators.(Better stop here, my blood is boiling!)

That Rubio joined with them is the most disappointing news I´ve heard in a long time. His partners in this crime are the usual suspects including Schumer, Durbin, McCain and Lady Lindsey.

I just wish the 535 + 1 traitors in Washington would add one of their many amendments and ban any kind of government aid, of any kind, for a minimum of ten years after arrival, and require a 10% additional tax penalty for the privilege of being here.

#1, this is a consequence of Reps staying home in 2012. It showed that Reps can´t win with just Rep support. If conservatives stay home to make some sort of point, you have to expect electeds to pander to people that aren´t so principled. What else would you expect?

We already have immigration laws. With crazy McCain (whom more than a few suspect of being the Manchurian Candidate) pushing it, i do not trust this plan.

I hope the house will reject it. We absolutely must shower our Washington Reps. with mail and phone calls.

No... it just proves that the new gang of 14 or whatever, is willing to sell this country down the river anytime the opprortunity is at hand. Take a good look at California you dolts... down the toilet, broke and led by illegal immigration loving idiots.

The Beatles: Let them be

Half a century ago, the Beatles were really busy. After Beatlemania broke out in 1963, they played more than 1,200 shows, recorded 12 LPs and appeared in five movies. Some followed the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, or admitted to trying acid, or spurned royal honors, or claimed to be more popular than Jesus. Then, in 1970, they broke up. But that didn’t end Beatlemania. In 1976, “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels appealed to the band on the air, offering them $3,000 to reunite. Not long before he was killed, John Lennon had to endure

Phil Mickelson shares emotional

Phil Mickelson started the day with a 20/1 chance to win the Open Championship, but a remarkable charge on the back nine at Muirfield secured fifth major championship victory. While Tiger Woods and the rest of the leaders were faltering, Mickelson birdied four of his last six holes, including the 18th, to build an insurmountable lead. His final round 66 ties the best score of any player all week long. After draining a birdie putt on the 18th hole, Mickelson walked off the green and embraced his family, making for one of the greatest photos of the summer.

Four words of advice for African Americans in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal: Wake the hell up. The Sunday after Zimmerman went free was a day of protest for many of us. From Biscayne Boulevard in Miami to Leimert Park in Los Angeles, to the Daley Center in Chicago to Times Square in New York City, African Americans — and others who believe in racial justice — carried out angry, but mostly peaceful demonstrations.Good. This is as it should have been. But if that’s the end, if you just get it out of your system

At this point in the long holiday weekend, I’m ready to kick back and discuss immigration reform. It’s a very important issue. Plus, I have found it difficult to keep a dinner party conversation going with the farm bill. Here’s one of the good things about the immigration bill that passed the Senate last week. It reminds us of how things used to work in Congress, back in the day when the two parties would get together and make big messy deals that we all complained about. Which now, of course, we miss. Come back, big messy deals! All is forgiven.

Jeb Bush to House lawmakers:

Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, says that House Republicans should improve and then pass the immigration bill that passed out of the Democrat-led Senate last week. “No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration, added to the welfare rolls, and failed to ensure a secure border,” they said. Mr. Bush and Clint Bollick, co-authors of “Immigration Wars,” said in a Wall Street Journal opinion article that GOP lawmakers would sell out basic conservative principles by opposing the bill.

A Republican Case for
Immigration Reform
Wall Street Journal, by Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 7/1/2013 8:55:52 AM     Post Reply
Now that the Senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform, the action shifts to the House of Representatives. Here the GOP´s informal "Hastert Rule" requires Speaker John Boehner to have majority support among Republicans before he will bring legislation to the floor for a vote. That means an immigration bill will need a far greater share of Republican House members than the Senate version received (where fewer than one-third of Republicans voted "aye"). This is a tall order. But it is one to which House Republicans should respond. No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration

Debating the nature of marriage
Washington Post, by Donald Wuerl    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 6/30/2013 3:38:13 PM     Post Reply
This is a significant moment in our public conversation on marriage. By ruling a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and choosing not to rule on the question of same-sex marriage in California, the Supreme Court essentially declared that the federal government may not set parameters for the definition of marriage but, instead, must leave that power to the states. This means that the important debate about the meaning of marriage is destined to continue. Some have framed this debate in terms of “equality.” That rings with a certain American appeal. Everyone wants to be treated

Obama clashes with African

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court´s ruling on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy" but clashed with his African host over gay rights in a sign of how far the movement has to go internationally. Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognized universally. It was his first chance to expand on his thoughts about the ruling, which was issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, one of many African countries that outlaw homosexuality.

The Same-Sex Marriage Rulings
New York Times, by Editors    Original Article

Today’s two Supreme Court rulings involving same-sex marriage were a huge and gratifying victory in the long struggle to end government-sanctioned discrimination against gay and lesbian Americans. It is sad, this deep into the national conversation about equal rights, that five justices were not willing to recognize a constitutional right for all couples to marry, regardless of the state where they live or their genders. But the momentum for marriage equality seems unstoppable and such a breakthrough will eventually come. The first ruling struck down the central provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act, the odious 1996 federal law

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is tuning out the "chirpers" in the Republican Party -- the critics on his right who disagree with his push for a comprehensive immigration bill. If Bush decides on a 2016 White House bid, the son and brother of two presidents said in an interview this weekend that it will be a campaign based on his two terms as governor. "It will be based on what I believe and it will be based on my record," Bush told the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).

ROME — For years, perhaps even centuries, it has been an open secret in Rome: That some prelates in the Vatican hierarchy are gay. But the whispers were amplified this week when Pope Francis himself, in a private audience, appears to have acknowledged what he called a “gay lobby” operating inside the Vatican, vying for power and influence. The remarks — which the Vatican spokesman did not deny and the participants at the private audience confirmed — appeared to be part of an effort by the pope to take on the entrenched interests in the Vatican

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months?

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.

Two beliefs continue to shape debate on Obamacare. First, pre-existing medical conditions shouldn’t prevent people from obtaining affordable health insurance. And second, people who don’t want health insurance shouldn’t be forced by the government to purchase it. These may seem to be reasonable positions. But they are incompatible. That’s been shown by historical events, and it’s now being strikingly confirmed by recent experience in the emerging Obamacare insurance exchanges. The crux of the matter is what economists call the adverse-selection problem. Uninsured people with pre-existing conditions often face tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in
